Dr. Sherry Colvin

DMD & Practice Owner
Dr. Sherry Colvin
Dr. Sherry Colvin is a native of South Georgia and grew up in Cairo, Georgia.  Dr. Colvin attended VSU and then received her dental degree from Medical College of Georgia.  She is an expert cosmetic restorative dentist that specializes in creating perfect smiles.  Her compassion for her patients is clearly seen and felt when visiting her office.  Dr. Colvin’s commitment is evident in her high quality approach to dental health.  She realizes that “going to the dentist” is not something most people would admit to enjoying.  That is why she feels strongly about the experience her patients receive at Nu-Smile, one in which they would look forward to visiting again, just as a friend would.

I graduated in 2006 from VSU as a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I am also certified in infection control and head up our OSHA Policies and Compliance.  I have been with Dr. Colvin as her Clinical Hygiene director since 2009.  I believe that what sets Nu-Smile apart is our unprecedented compassion for our patients.  Here at Nu-Smile I always strive to maintain an optimum level of professionalism.  We aim to make certain that each patient’s dental experience is pleasant and positive.  We all work for the same goal: seeing our patients SMILE!!  In my spare time, I enjoy attending church and spending time with my husband and our two children.  We are avid Valdosta Wildcat Football fans.  GO CATS!!

I am a graduate of VSU with a degree in dental hygiene since 2012.  I feel very blessed to be a part of such a wonderful practice here at Nu-Smile and with Dr. Colvin.  I personally take great pride in our patients oral health care.  From the moment a new patient comes into our office and watching their smile transform into one they have always imagined is truly a rewarding experience.  It not only changes that beautiful smile but also somehow changes their entire personality.  It seems that they glow from within.  Here at Nu-Smile, we are always seeking new ways to advance our knowledge with the latest technology available in modern dentistry.  When I’m not in the office taking care of our patients, you can find me spending time on the lake or the race track with my husband, our three year old son, and soon a new addition to the family.

Growing up, I always had a very positive experience while visiting the dentist.  I knew at an early age that I wanted to pursue a career in dental hygiene.  I graduated in 2013 from VSU with my dental hygiene degree.  I joined the amazing Nu-Smile team in May 2016.  I absolutely adore the calming and relaxing atmosphere that the patients receive here at Nu-Smile.  It is my personal goal to provide them excellent care while, at the same time, educating them on their overall health.  I strive to make their visit one they will be glad to share fondly with friends and family.  In my time off, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and our two fur babies, Murphy and Beau.

I have been working as a clinical cosmetic assistant since 1998.  I have been here at Nu-Smile for seven years now.  Working here allows me to focus on the cosmetic aspect of dentistry and take part in our smile makeovers.  Working with Dr. Colvin, I am able to see beautiful results from “Invisalign” for those patients that require it and also the gorgeous “Lumineers” for that Hollywood smile everyone desires.  I absolutely love my job and our patients.  When I’m not working, I have three children that always keep me on the go and in three different directions everyday!  My two boys are active in baseball and my daughter cheers for the Lowndes High School Vikings!

Certified Dental Assistant

I originally am from Michigan and my father was in the military and was transferred to Valdosta when I was very young.  Growing up here in the South, I can say that I am truly a “Georgia peach”.  I graduated in 2012 from Wiregrass College with my degree in Expanded Function Certified Dental Assistant.  My rotations were done through Nu-Smile, and Dr. Colvin offered me a full time position upon graduation.  So here I am 4 years later, loving life and work!  I so enjoy working with the Nu-Smile team and Dr. Colvin.  Our ability to help people not only with their smiles but also with their overall health is very rewarding.  I am a people person, and I love getting to know my patients.  My goal is for each patient to leave with a smile on their face and improved oral wellness.  I am a newlywed of just 7 months, and life is great.  I love spending time with my husband and my two fur babies.

I have been with Dr. Sherry Colvin for over 15 years.  Since starting work with her, I have been part of some amazing cases.  My whole life I have worked in the dental field.  I love it today just as much as the first day I began my career.  Although I have been semi-retired for the last 3 years, I still look forward to my time with Dr. Colvin and the team every Wednesday.  When not at work, you can usually find me and my husband down at our beach house.  We love it there and we usually have some, if not ALL of our 7 adorable grandchildren with us.

Office Management

Jenny Youmans

Dental Practice Administrator
Jenny Youmans

I started my dental career in the fall of 1980.  I have been privileged to have worked with some fabulous dentists during my career, but working here at Nu-Smile Family Dentistry is by far the most amazing experience.  Dr. Colvin and the entire team here are just like my second family; we all strive to make certain our patients feel the same experience when visiting our office.  Helping patients achieve a beautiful smile is so rewarding and motivates me to continue my work in keeping Nu-Smile at the forefront of the dental field.  I grew up in Valdosta, Georgia, and married my high school sweetheart.  We have two grown children and four grandchildren whom I adore!  In my spare time, I enjoy interior decorating, painting, and photography.

Jessi Youmans

Insurance Management Director

I have been in the field of dentistry since 2005.  I have worked essentially all over the dental office, from assistant, front desk/receptionist and now Insurance manager.  I love the dental field and cannot imagine any other profession for myself.  Working here at Nu-Smile, we as a team have “fun” while still maintaining a very professional environment.  I believe that is important because patients sense when everything is in harmony.  Outside of the office, I enjoy creating and making jewelry and spending time with my husband and son and our three dogs.

Valerie Hill

Patient Resource Representative

I graduated as a dental assistant in 1997 from Florida Community College of Jacksonville, Florida.  I entered the dental field and assisted for years.  Eventually I moved to the front, and now I am the patient resource representative.  I absolutely love being the “face” of Nu-Smile, meaning that I am the first person normally you would speak to when calling our office and the first person you see when you arrive.  I can also be seen occasionally around the office as “The Tooth Fairy”.  We go throughout Lowndes County to the elementary schools and educate the students on the importance of a healthy smile.  I am a very motivated individual and absolutely love helping our patients.  When I’m not working at Nu-Smile, I enjoy painting and spending time with my husband and two daughters.
